Public & Patient Involvement (PPI)
Our vision for PPI is to deliver: 'An active partnership between the public, researchers and others, to develop cancer research in Wales to improve their health and well being'.
Over four years, we have developed an innovative framework which has helped to implement and embed a supportive PPI culture across the centre.
The members of the public involved in our research wanted to communicate the work they carried out and decided the best way to do this would be to write case studies to show the excellent work they do.
The report to the left is the end result and is a great portrayal of how PPI is considered to be the 'golden thread' that is woven in throughout all that we do at the centre.

Watch our film if you would like to know more about public involvement in research
Members of our public and patient involvement team have worked with Cardiff University staff to produce a short film highlighting the benefits of public involvement in research.
The film ‘Why get involved in Research?’ is aimed at members of the public and firstly tackles the question ‘why research is important’. It provides several options of how people in Wales can use their voice to make a difference to health and social care research. Finally, it provides contact information on how members of the public can get involved in research in Wales.
We are always on the lookout for more research partners to join our team, if you or anyone you know would like to make a difference and get involved in research then please contact us at WCRC@Cardiff.ac.uk.
